Pimples are turning into huge red marks ;(

Recommended Posts

I'm very scared right now.... my face has tons of redmarks as it is, but I dont remember having skin condition this bad.

Right now, a new pimple is formed everyday.. I can see/feel the red bump.

What I do is I quickly cover it with BP gel until the swelling goes down. Now here's the problem. The swelling did go down, but they dont totally blend in with the skin. They just become a permanent small bump which are visibly red... and it's as big as when the swelling is at its peak!!

I'm totally lost on what to do :(

Try applying some ice. If you can get neosporin or polysporin they help the pimple heal and helps reduse redness.

The redness is caused by dilated red blood cells near the skin surface (apparently). When your acne isn't as prominent you could try glycolic acid to try and reduce their effect. I've also read here thet bp can make red marks more intense.

I've experienced this kind of "scarring".

Time is the only healer.

Two products i believe that have helped me are as follows:

Neutrogena Clear Pore Gel

Neutrogena visibly clear mosituriser containg aloe.

Hope that helps.

If you live in Canada, you can only get it through prescription.

If you live in US, I think you can buy it anywhere.

If you live anywhere else, no idea sory :(

At least your swelling goes back to its full size.. mine just stays flat and uncurable!!!
